Is there anything more annoying than all of this daylight savings time nonsense? I mean what purpose does it serve in a modern world? Granted, most of our devices that we use to tell time update automatically these days, and the ones that don’t are easy enough to change, but that’s not the point.
Sure, getting an extra hour on a Sunday in the fall to lay in bed and cuddle kitties isn’t all bad. But then your internal body clock needs to reset too or you’ll be out of sync with your schedule. There’s the hassle of remembering the time differences that change because your loved one lives in Arizona where they don’t change their clocks in some weird effort to create more daytime.
Then come spring we “lose” that hour, causing more confusion, not to mention health problems and car accidents as we rise like zombies for the first few days, our body clocks telling us we should be sleeping, not driving in rush hour traffic.
The time has come to end this ridiculousness. It may have had its place when it was created when most people worked farms and such, but in the world we live in now it causes more harm than good, in my opinion.
We need to do away with it altogether. Let’s stop thinking we can control the daylight and just let time carry on.
Thus ends my rant for today. I need some coffee and I have editing to do! Happy Sunday, Readers, approach it with kindness.

I wholeheartedly agree! We need as much sunlight as ever.
